    Hey everyone,
    I need a .pdf to .doc converter or a way to recover formatting in a pdf when copying to word. I typed up an outline for a paper, printed to pdf, and forgot to save as .doc. I feel like an idiot. Is there anything I can do?

    I've done this before too ;)
    There may be a program out there that does this, but not one that I know of. Sometime copy pasting the text straight forward does a good job. If you havent tried that, I would.

    Zamzar will supposedly do this, but I tried it and have yet to receive an email with the converted file.

    Adobe Acrobat will do it.

    I use an OCR program called Readiris for converting PDF's to .doc files. You can download a free 30 day trial. It costs $129 but I found that if you download the 30 trial they make an offer of 50% off, I don't know if they still do that. If this is all you need it for just use the free trial and don't buy.

    Zamzar looks pretty cool, never knew such a thing existed. I'll give that a try since it's free.
